Our commitment to keep Charlotte’s first Catholic Radio Station on the air these past 5 years has been relentless. In late 2021 we sold our tower site land to finance operations in 2022-2023. Keeping the radio station on the air and Catholic are our top priorities. If we had to sell we would look for Catholic ownership. What we did not expect was the inability to work out a long-term land lease with the new owner at the tower site. Without that long-term land lease we cannot sell the radio station. So now it's up to you, our Carolina Catholic Community, to help keep us on the air.
As noted earlier, we have an opportunity to expand our radio signal coverage along the I-85 East corridor including both Cabarrus and Rowan counties. This would dramatically increase the reach of Catholic Radio in the Charlotte Metropolitan Area from approximately 600,000 to 1,100,000! The investment required to nearly double our coverage is $6000 per month. This represents 6 parishes tithing at $1000 per month.
This year’s fundraising totals were dramatically under operating expenses of which 80% are attributable to the radio station. That being said, it is our hope that after much expense cutting, your year-end donations and monthly pledgeswill allow us to pay our creditors and continue operating the radio station on a bare bone budget. The success of this pledge drive between now and December 31 will determine whether we stay on the air or shut down the radio station prior to our fifth anniversary on January 31. Please pray for the success of this campaign to keep our Digital and Radio Evangelization efforts going and growing in the year ahead.
Regardless of what happens with the radio station, we are prepared and committed to move forward with our 6 other media platforms to deliver strong 3-Diocese (3-D) coverage across the Carolinas. These platforms include:
Carolina Catholic Media is committed to share our Catholic Christian faith in this digital age with Local Evangelization that proclaims the TRUTH of JESUS CHRIST counteracting the disordered, agnostic and atheistic messages of our dark secular culture.

Why Religion Can't Satisfy Itself in God What happens when we impose extra Biblical ideas onto ourselves or others in an effort to be "spiritual"? Forcing ourselves into fabricated holiness robs us of abundant life and joy-filled purpose. Let;s talk about the difference between true holiness and a self imposed infliction of religious ideas in an effort to be holy.
